The much awaited 2015 African Cup of Nations draw held on Wednesday night. The Black Stars of Ghana were drawn in arguably the ‘Group of Death’ of the competition to take place in January.
Former Black Stars captain Stephen Appiah has admitted the challenge ahead of the senior national team in Equatorial Guinea with respect to their group adversaries but claims the Black Stars can qualify.
The former player of the senior national team told Ghanasoccernet.com:
“Let’s not kid ourselves this is a very tough group, Can we make it? Yes. We have to be prepared for it from the first game against Senegal.
“We have three finals already at the group stage. Ghana have what it takes to beat any country in the world on our day but we all have to start serious work now.
“Time is against us but let’s dig deep and we will qualify.”
The Black Stars of Ghana will play Senegal, South Africa and Algeria in the group stages of the 2015 African Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea.
